Melissa Remmey Attends Annual Student Conference on U.S. Policy

This past November, I represented Wake Forest at the 66th Annual Student Conference on U.S. Policy held at West Point Military Academy. Students from all over the world attend the conference each year to facilitate collaboration between civilian student delegates and West Point cadets. The task of this year’s conference was to determine “What’s the Worst that Could Happen” in terms of international crises and develop foreign policy suggestions advising the United States how to respond. Each day, we engaged in round table discussions focused on a specific type of international crisis. My round table topic was ‘Constitutions and Coup D’etats’ and at the end of the weekend we presented a paper about our research. In addition to the round table discussions, we attended panel lectures and listened to an address by the key note speaker Thomas Pickering. Working and living with the West Point cadets for the duration of the conference was an awesome experience and I am very grateful I had the opportunity to attend.
